Microwave timer works but will motor will not run/cook.


If everything works on the unit, but you do not receive any heat or possibly the turntable does not turn you have a faulty magnetron (controls heat) and a faulty motor (controls turntable). You would require service on the unit, if parts are available. Some microwaves are so small in cubic foot size, that manufacturer's do not have parts available for purchase/repairs.

Just like others, the microwave component does not work. Convection works just fine. Before microwave quit, it appeared to have something to do with the door(?) I would put a napkin b/w door and by...


If the inside light, fan and turntable come on when you try to cook, but it does not heat, this is probably a bad primary interlock (top door switch) or possibly that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on safety, and this file on door switches.

We have the full service / installation manual for this unit, and have uploaded it here to help you.

If the inside light, fan and turntable do not come on when you try to cook, the 20A fuse is probably bad or loose in its holder.

MICROWAVE NOT HEATING


Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Check your power setting, making sure that you are cooking at 100%. Adjust if necessary.
It could also be a bad magnetron.

GE Advantium SCA1000 not heating


That would be 'the primary interlock (top door switch), or its mount may be loose or cracked.

It may be a coincidence, or not. Hard to say.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

But it could be misalignment from the door work. Too bad he didn't just replace the door handle. That's such an easy job.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

It's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Advantium Turntable On and off


I would suspect the motor is failing, but it's also possible that you have an issue with a door switch or door switch mount, depending on your model number.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
